Reviews
reviewed Ask Alice. June 17, 2010
"Ask Alice" takes place in the early 1900's through 1932.  I generally enjoy reading about this period in time.  There are some interesting moments, but over all I don't feel …
You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up is written by and about Annabelle Gurwitch and Jeff Kahn.  The introduction pretty well states what you will expect from the book; "Marriage is the only war in …
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
This book pulls you into a world of fantasy, a Wonderful World!  It begins in dreary Kansas and takes you to enchantment.  Vivid colors, rainbows and an Emerald City.  Trees talk, scarecrow …

Quick Tips
posted a Quick Tip about Crime and Punishment (book). June 16, 2010
Crime and Punishment
One of my schools mandatory books. Dostoyevsky really paints a picture, it really brought me in.
posted a Quick Tip about Pride and Prejudice (book). June 16, 2010
Barnes and Noble books
The vocabulary is interesting, author's simply do not write the same way now. I enjoyed the historical elements, but it is a slow read.
posted a Quick Tip about Inherit the Wind. June 16, 2010
Inherit the Wind (Jerome Lawrence and Robert Lee)
Interesting trial, gets you thinking. Wonderful dialog.
posted a Quick Tip about Dracula (novel). June 16, 2010
Dracula (first edition)
Very well written, horrifying but fascinating
posted a Quick Tip about Borders. June 16, 2010
giftcard
Borders has a large selection, you can usually find a person to help you. Book stores are just a great place to brouse.

A Christmas Carol
You must read Dicken's, just for the vocabulary. This classic is dated, but has so many positive behaviors that should not be forgotten.
posted a Quick Tip about Marley & Me: Life And Love With The W.... June 16, 2010
Marley & Me: A Memoir
It made me laugh and cry. I didn't see the movie, but could envision all the antics of Marley, very descriptive.

The Constant Princess
I have enjoyed Philipa Gregory but this book was not memorable, more fiction than fact.
posted a Quick Tip about Comic Books. June 16, 2010
Comics
There is a place for comics. They are a bit different than the Archie and Super man of old. I loved them as a kid, but have out grown them now.
posted a Quick Tip about CliffsNotes. June 16, 2010
They are beneficial in that key points are highlighted. You get a synopsis of the book, main points and is helpful as a study guide
